Help me! Pick a floor

Fall. Mid-October. The temperature today will be 25C!!! The sky is clear and bright and blue and the sun is shining.
Some pictures from around my place this weekend....The birch tree out front. The progress of my lace shawl. The colour of autum. My new "do", short and light.

Old posts....I was reading over old posts and current ones, for that matter and I couldn't help but notice one thing...........I sound so bloody cheerful and perky I can't stand it myself!! I am so not that way...not to an extreme anyway...and there are (most) days when I feel downright dumped on and feel like I'm just hanging on. I'm ok though. I have learned a valuable lesson while traveling through this happy about every little thing that comes your way....because the little things all add up to something wonderful.

My latest knitting project...."Bamboo Shoot" Shawl.

A big pot of impatients and mini-roses going for one last hurrah!

I'm going to have a decadent afternoon....a movie and knitting and maybe some dark chocolate.

Friday, October 05, 2007 extra weekend day...turkey time...autumn colours...and warm, um no make that hot summer-like days. I'll take these sunny days. I will cook the traditional Thanksgiving dinner on Monday and will toss WW out the window for that day - turkey, stuffing, whipped potatoes, green beans, carrots, rolls, pickles, tomatoes, pumpkin pie and butter tarts - groan!

I am thankful for....... my little boys and my big 'kids' boys all grown up!

Friendship..the friends for 46 years and still counting..of course!

Music & Laughter --- wow two of my favourite smart women together - Joni Mitchell & Rosie O'D

I am thankful for too many things to write down here.

Be Thankful......................and finally...........

Peace - one of my beautiful nieces, Sarah...I think this picture exudes peace, don't you?

M. from know - one of my favourite blogs to buying up these beautiful soft, leather, handmade, slippers with a bit of bling, before she makes a trip to the U.S. I have ordered a pair and I am sure I will love whatever (dark) colour she choses. Isn't she kind, bringing a bit of Marrakesh to us on this side of the ocean?
